State of the Franchise: Descending

The New England Patriots still have quarteback Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick but that isn’t enough. This year, for the first time since they’ve been together, they’ll play in a loaded AFC East. And this happens while they lose too many valuable peices from the defense and they lose Brady for four games.
